Consistently excellent! Wonderful food, attentive and courteous service. Never disappointed.
Love the food! Our meal was outstanding. The service was attentive and cordial. A great experience overall. The tables are a bit crowded.
Great food. Great service. Was able to order off menu, for items we were craving.
Our waitress, Linda made our first Mia Francesca’s visit remarkable! She recommended a very rich and tasteful red wine (Chianti). All four is us ordered the lasagna and scallops salad which is a great choice. Overall, I would recommend this restaurant to everyone for how fresh the food is and the ambiance.
The only negative were the drunk people at the bar next to our table. They were extremely loud and had to ask them to quiet down.
We actually went for brunch when our original choice was way too packed to accommodate our group. I had been there many times for dinner and loved it but wouldn’t have thought if it for weekend brunch. They had a really extensive brunch menu
Food is outstanding and worth the visit if you love Italian! Although it was tight quarters and quite noisy the staff were very attentive and kind which made the experience wonderful.
The food is excellent and the service is second to none.
We had an enjoyable dinner, the food was delicious and the service was outstanding. We really enjoyed our evening, everything was so good from the wine all the way through dessert. We will return again. This was our second time here and it was even better than the first and that was pretty good as well. Thanks to Junior and the rest of the team at Mis Francesca.
The evening started off rocky as we arrived we were told we would have to sit upstairs instead of the main dining room as "they had too many walk-ins fill the dining room". Then they took us upstairs and tried to put us at the smallest table at the back of the room. When I asked for a better table, the hostess begrudgingly moved us to a better table. I believe when you take the time to make a reservation you should be seated at a better table than walk-ins. The service was great and the food as good as always. I just wish it had started out on a better foot for our anniversary celebration.
Food was delicious! The service was exceptional and I loved how we were not rushed through our dinner so they could have our table. We will definitely be back!
We drove in from out of town to see Blue Man Group and stopped here on a whim because there was a coupon attached to our tickets.
We ended up with the brunch menu, which was disappointing, but we found out they would have served us from the dinner menu if we wanted.
At any rate, the food was amazing (best potatoes I have ever had and I'm 43). The service was excellent (but there were only four parties in the restaurant.
I mean, it was expensive.....but you get what you pay for and we felt we got our moneys worth and then some.
Fantastic. Everything was delicious!
Excellent food and service!
HAD NOT BEEN TO MIA'S IN PROBABLY 15-20 YRS !! STILL A GREAT PLACE THE FOOD WAS AMAZING I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO GOING BACK SOON .
Ok. I make good meatballs. These were unreal. Everything great. Great carpaccio. Great salads. Highly recommend this place. Great for families. Perfect pre-Comedy Sportz dinner.
Wonderful as always!
Very accommodating of our large group and great food! Very reasonable.
Had the best service. Always good but tonight was exceptional. It is always my “go to” and will always be!!
Mia Francesca is one of our longtime favorites. We had a Valentine's reservation and only waited a few minutes. Food is always excellent. Our server dropped the ball a few times (where's my wine?), but the young busboy was outstanding.
Long wait for a reservation, but it was Valentine’s Day so somewhat understandable. Food was great, service was surprisingly good considering the restaurant was over booked.
Too loud and over crowded. Tables to close together.
Always solid Italian!
Everything was great the server was very knowledgeable and helpful food was good only downside is the seating it's a little too congested no privacy to even have a conversation
I had the four cheese filled pasta with vodka sauce. Amazing. Wish it came with more
Great food but the ambience was a bit off. Very noisy and crammed inside of the restaurant but I will return because of the delicious food.
I’ve dined at Mia many times. This time, the food wasn’t great. Our fried calamari tasted fishy (not fresh) and my rigatoni pasta was really mediocre. I brought a date and was a bit embarrassed. Not sure if they have a new chef?
The service and ambience was good.
My husband and I always love going to Francesca’s because of their food and wine selection. I was happy that the host took us upstairs instead of staying in the lower level. It can be very loud and too tight!
Service was good and food was great. Nothing extraordinary but always consistent
The manager was extremely nice and accommodating (forget the gentleman's name - he was working on 2/9 Saturday evening at Clark location).
Celebrating 1yr anniversary and couldn’t have asked for a better experience from food to service to ambiance. Will definitely be returning.
Great Italian food (loved the fried artichoke appetizer) and great service. Will be back. Recommended
Terrific meal with good friends. Arancini, risotto, salads, pasta and desserts were delicious and wonderful. Service was impeccable. We were visiting from St. Louis and hope to return to Mia Francesca again.
Huge portions. Good deal for Restaurant Week, but I don't recommend the chocolate lava cake or the salad. Go for the tiramisu and the soup instead.
The original Francesca's and still knocking it out of the park!
Tom our server was fantastic as was the food!
Consistantly excellent food! Small menu but haven’t EVER chosen anything not very good or delicious. Loud, seats close together, have met many a fellow diner. Despite everything, food is ALWAYS good!
Food was fantastic. The service was just a bit slow getting started but nothing horrible. Definitely recommend this place to anyone.
Thank you so much for making my birthday celebration absolutely wonderful! The bruschetta was the best I've ever had anywhere and how amazing where the dinner choices we had. We ended up giving up our table to sit at the bar and were treated absolutely the best ever. We then went to see the Blue Man Group and after the show decided that we just loved the atmosphere and the way that we were treated that we came back to have a drink before heading home and the conversation as well as special moments with your staff just warmed my heart and made me decide that no matter how far away it is to drive by you it will definitely be worth the wild. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to your staff for making it the most memorable place ever!
We always enjoy Mia Francesca and our most recent dinner there was no exception. The restaurant was very busy when we arrived, but our server quickly filled our initial drink order and let us linger a bit before ordering. The burrata salad special was an outstanding starter. The pasta special, featuring a variety of cheeses, also was outstanding. The calamari appetizer, which we ordered as a main course and typically is very, very good, was a little heavily breaded. When we casually mentioned that to our server after the meal, the restaurant graciously comped us on that item--which was totally unnecessary, as we had eaten it. That is just one example of how attentive Mia Francesca is to its customers. And the Zabligione dessert, which was recently added to the menu, was an excellent finisher to our meal. The service was outstanding, the ambiance energetic and friendly, the evening very enjoyable. Mia Francesca is on our regular rota of Chicago restaurants and will stay there.
